Let's all get pickled with Peppadew | Milk and Cookies SA

GETTING PICKLED WITH PEPPADEW AT DEAR ME

Since 2003, Peppadew has been a staple in this American girl’s expat life. I won’t lie to you, it’s incredibly challenging not to call a piquante pepper a Peppadew, the brand is synonymous with their flagship product. That little, red, sweet and sour, deliciously crunchy, tender, magical pepper was an eye-opening burst of flavour the very first time I […]

The Blend Cape Town | Milk and Cookies

THE BLEND | CAPE TOWN

I keep thinking about The Blend.   Maybe I miss it a little bit, is that weird?  I guess a little.  Some places just fit.  Some places are without.   This place was just right; warm and friendly and I don’t know if it was because I’d spoken to Julie the owner before I met her, […]

Salt and Straw | Milk & Cookies

SALT AND STRAW: ICE CREAM IN PORTLAND, OREGON

In line, we stood waiting, wondering, what would Salt & Straw have in store for three food loving, but most importantly ice cream adoring eaters?  As we neared the fridge filled with what I consider the best culinary invention of all time., my mouth began to salivate, it was almost ice cream tasting time, my […]

The Kitchen is Bitchin' | Milk & Cookies

THE KITCHEN IS TOTALLY BITCHIN’

Standing outside, waiting for lost friends, (The Kitchen is inconspicuously located in Woodstock, so keep your eyes peeled), Karen Dudley approaches a group of what looks to be lost patrons and invites us in.   We explain that we are waiting for the rest of our direction following impaired friends (they blamed the delay on their GPS… I blame […]
